Laziest question ever: When watching a series, at the end of an episode, it asks if you want to watch the next episode. (see image). Is there any way to use the keyboard to indicate moving on to the next episode without using the mouse?  I've used the arrow keys, return, and space bar, and Netflix does not respond unless I find my mouse and click on the Next Episode button.  Thoughts?

Have you tried TAB over to the button and then ENTER?

It would appear that no key works. That just doesn't make sense to me.  Is there a way to tell Netflix to auto move to the next episode in a series?

Have you given thought to a wireless keyboard/mouse combo?  If you are using this in a home entertainment scenario then the wireless device would be small enough to store out of sight.  The device looks like a keyboard and touch pad off of a laptop, and then you wouldn't have to search for your mouse.  It would be right there on the keyboard.  Not big enough for serious typing and mouse usage, but convenient for light use.
